i have been trying to tune in a new prime focus ku lnb on my 2.4m dish on optus D1,i am receiving some new transponders but cant get them to tune in. they are

12477 15000 V 81% sig 73% qual
12699 18000 V 80% sig 75% qual

have checked satbeams/lyngsat to find out whats on those transponders but cant find any info on those tp numbers.

does anyone know what they might be?

i also tried to tune in optus c1,but could not for the life of me find it,surely a prime focus lnb should lock on?

also the nz transponders were only coming in at 80% max(cloudy day in nelson for a change)) but should this be more signal on a 2.4m dish?

cheers pugsyCool

I'm sure you've already done this, but check that you're using the right LO frequency for the LNB. If you're using the wrong frequency, the transponders will appear on 'different' frequencies themselves - and some not at all.

Also, check that you've got the LNB mounted correctly polarity wise.

They are data carriers you need to correct your lnbf l.o frequencys its out by 150
They should be on
 
12327 V 15000
12548 V 18000

they are data only.

with a prime focus ku lnb on a 2.4m solid dish,what sort of signal should you be receiving off optus d1?

i am only getting 88% on most tps,i can get just as much on my 75cm dish. i have adjusted dish,skew you name it.

i would have thought it would be nearer 100% especially on a clear day,any ideas nelsonites and abroad?

my aim is to look at c1 at some stage for some na and nb overspill. but i guess would need some bigger numbers than at present.

cheers pugsy
